Also known as 'Redjang', Kaganga is a script native to southeast
Sumatra in Indonesia. Kaganga is a descendant of the Javanese Kawi
script. Obviously influenced by the structure of Indic scripts,
Kaganga is a syllabic alphabet of 23 consonants, as well as 13
diacritics which are used to either suppress or change the inherent
vowel of the syllable. Revealing its underlying Indic origins,
Kaganga derives its name from its first three syllables: 'ka', 'ga',
'nga'. At times, texts set in Kaganga are called 'Aksara Kaganga'.
